Latina actress Gina Rodríguez will give voice to a character named Mary on the new Sony Pictures Animation movie “The Star.” The film tells the story of a small but brave donkey called Bo (Steven Yeun) craving for a life beyond his daily routine at the village mill. One day he finds the courage to break free, and finally goes on the adventure of his dreams.

On his journey, he teams up with Ruth, a loveable sheep who has lost her flock and Dave, a dove with condescending aspirations. Along with three funny camels and some eccentric stable animals, Bo and his new friends follow the Star and become accidental heroes in the greatest story ever told – the first Christmas.

This original story, written by Simon Moore and Carlos Kotkin, establishes Gina’s first leading role on an animation film and she’s very happy about it, as she told People this week.

“I laughed after only reading a few pages,” the 32-year-old told People. “I was so in love with all the players that I fell in love with the story all over again.”

This experience means a lot the actress who plays a “virgin” for the second time.

“I exaggerate my physicality to get it across in my voice. I tend to be pretty animated in real life. For voiceover work you have to be aware of your physicality but at the same time extend yourself so that the audience feels every intention,” shares the "Jane the Virgin" star.

According to Daily Mail, Gina has also been confirmed to voice touring thief Carmen Sandiego for a new Netflix animated series. Netflix has already ordered 20 22-minute episodes to premiere in 2019, as detailed on THR

"The Star" will premiere in theaters on November 10th.
